TACLOBAN CITY – The mayor of Matag-ob town in Leyte has called on his people to support the peace and order campaign being enforced in his municipality.

Mayor Bernandino Tacoy said that with a good peace and order situation, Matag-ob could expect investors coming in as well as tourist.

To help in the peace and order program of his administration, he will launch a program called “Text to Tacoy” wherein residents may send information on presence of illegal activities in their area or names of people who are involved in illegal activities.

“Illegal drugs should be given a chance to proliferate in our town. We should not allow drug peddlers to operate in our municipality,” Tacoy said.

“Residents should help in ensuring that our town remains to be free from illegal drug trade and our children are safe from these vices, that is why we will soon launch program wherein people may send information on illegal activities happening in their area,” Tacoy added.

Identity of the texters will be treated with confidentiality, and information will be verified for its veracity.

Currently, police visibility is being strengthened through checkpoints and foot patrol to ensure that they remain peaceful and orderly.
